Former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn pleaded guilty Friday morning after being charged with making false statements to federal officials.
A U.S. government document released by the office of special counsel Robert Mueller said Flynn has been indicted for making “materially false, fictitious and fraudulent statements” to federal officials. He is due in a federal court in Alexandria, Virginia, for a plea agreement hearing at 10:30 a.m. Friday.
